PERSONALITY DISORDER TREATMENT

Adaptable therapy to improve your life

We all have personality traits which impact on our choices, behaviour and mood.

 

However, expressing certain traits can lead to difficulties, affecting interpersonal relationships, motivation, thinking patterns and even leading to self-damaging behaviour. Some personality disorder traits can create difficult social scenarios for you and can have a big impact on your personal life.

If you're suffering from repeated patterns of behaviour, thoughts or feelings, you may well be experiencing a form of this mental health issue.

You may recognise that you repeatedly engage in behaviour that is detrimental to your own wellbeing. This can range from impulsive behaviour that you find yourself regretting, to substance misuse, self-harm, aggression, or difficulties in interpersonal relationships. You may have already been told by others that your behaviour is causing difficulties, or you may have received a diagnosis of personality disorder from another healthcare professional.

At PM Psychology, we recognise that individuals may not have a diagnosable disorder. We will explore, in depth, your unique circumstances before agreeing goals with you to improve your quality of life.

 

Our approach to treatment is evidence-based and adaptable, according to each individual’s unique circumstances. Personality disorder treatment can include talking therapy, such as CBT, drawing on elements of dialectical behaviour therapy, or DBT, acceptance and commitment therapy, or ACT. We also incorporate skills training and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR, therapy for any symptoms of trauma.
